|Siblings - Litter EP [nt108] - Siblings|
Pop songs about changing the cat litter & paying the rent? Cutting edge disco/hip-hop beats set to a formidably sketchy sensibility? Sophisticated songwriting that’s got nothing against honest straight talk? Well, all this & more can be heard on Siblings’ debut EP, which we present today with a suitably wide smile. Siblings is the reunion of David Turgeon (Camp) & the one & only Kaia Wong (Mixel Pixel, The Eastern Stars)...

|Period Three - Folder [nt013] - David Turgeon|
Third No Type release for Period Three, this one features 4 tracks of quirky, jumpy IDM that are much harder to describe than they are to listen to.

|Camp - Doubts [nt111] - David Turgeon|
Dear Camp, can’t you just leave poor techno music alone? Look what you've done to those nice, tender beats: now they've turned all dirty, broken & twisted. We thought we had "campstep" covered, but then the landscape changed & the weather got even more crazy. And now we're left with six brand new tracks that show an even edgier side that we’re going to have to name "expert breakdance". Sure, those who grooved to last year’s Is For Lovers will surely enjoy the new show, but tell me, did any...

|Period Three - Auld Cove [nt202] - David Turgeon|
Fall 1999, David Turgeon, still using his Period Three moniker, copy-pasted a bunch of samples from various sources within the Acid 1.0 sequencing software. He turned in eight very singular tracks. This surprising album had never been released before (save for an extremely limited CD-R edition). Today we finally remedy this unfortunate situation, and we hope to reveal more lost gems from the same old hard drive…

|Matrix Assimilation - Haiku [nt015] - Eryk Salvaggio|
Eryk Salvaggio's second EP is an almost meditative affair, in contrast to some of his more upbeat, noisier output. On the course of three tracks whose titles form a haiku, tension goes up & down, texture is sought & explored.
|Various Artists - Dhomontelements [nt082]|
Francis Dhomont's influence spans beyond the scope of his musical practice. The human richness of his art, his serious and pragmatical approach to theory, his honest and tactful union of philosophy and music, the fierce life animating his compositions are all essential elements of his inspiring work. On December 15th, 2001, fifteen Canadian and American musicians unveiled fourteen eclectical remixes of Dhomont's landmark compositions...

|Speech.fake - Image type/composite [nt031] - Cal Crawford|
Cal Crawford's online debut, this recording under the name of Speech.fake packs some serious punch. Each of these 8 tracks is a tense microuniverse peopled with the acute sense of narrative this composer is well known for. A word of caution: some of these are particularly oppressive, unlike Crawford's rather more serene subsequent output. * For full artwork and information please visit the official album page on notype.com.

This new work by Jos Smolders is part of his "beeld-kleur" (image-color) series, specifically aimed at "pictorial music" or repesentative music, as opposed to his usually non-figurative compositions. Hemel is dutch for "sky" but also for "heaven." Says Jos: "I sometimes think of Kevin's music as heavenly.

|Galerie Stratique - Point d'orgue [nt094] - Galerie Stratique|
Point d'orgue is the music of a future imagined by our grandparents. Following a brief improv session with Awdium, Galerie Stratique carefully edited and crafted this final session. Point d'orgue, with its akwardness, its explosion of contradictory sentiments, its limited means, its false virtuosity, slowed down funk, abusive repetitions and lo-fi sounds, is mostly a playful affair. But repeated listenings reveal not only some nuances and subtleties, but the possibility of a serious dependency.

Distance is the debut EP from K M Krebs, now a prominent figure of the netlabel scene. This stunning debut establishes the shortwave texture aesthetic that would be the defining mark of 833-45 in his following albums, but is also host to some seriously dirty, broken rhythms.

Here at No Type, we like ambiences most when they have personality. And personality is something Felix, the man behind Repetition/Distract, certainly doesn’t lack. Inbetween impressions of quiet architectures, massive landscapes & drony seas, there are percussive hints at a human presence. This music is in dark grey hues but it’s also warm & enveloping. And with enough twists & turns to keep you on the edge...
